WOYWW 194

Welcome back to another journey through the workspaces here there and everywhere. Head Mistress Julia will show you the ropes...

So, What's on My Workdesk this Wednesday - week 194... Not a huge lot - a partly worked on journal page... so I decided to show you from a different angle this time!

Yes, I was lying down on the floor in the doorway!! At the front right are my Wendy Vecchi stamps and behind them a pile of (dirty!) stencils...which are on top of my Tim Holtz stamp plates.... and on to the craft mat... past the worn carpet and Ikea rug! Mind you don't trip over my heat gun flex... piles and piles of messy but much used, crafty stash!!

so this is the journal page I am working on.

It's based on one of Leandra's tags she has made in a You-Tube video which I hope to incorporate on here somehow!

So are any of you going to Stamperama in Stevenage on Sunday? I can't wait - Paperartsy apart from anyone else has LOADS of new products which they've been launching this week at Stitches (trade show) and some of which will be at the show on Sunday. I can't wait!!!

I'll try and remember to wear my WOYWW badge in case I see you!
Thanks for stopping by, I'll try and repay your visit.  There is a new TIO challenge at Dragons Dream, today; please come back later to see what we're dreaming of this time.

Yay I made in in the list before you, but only as I am up surrering from this blasted cold/flu thingy. Your journal page makes me think of the moon landings and your floor moreso LOL. Did you ever get round to doing some tidying? BJ#4

WOW, this is quite a shot. Enjoy the show, wish I lived a little closer, you guys have lots of shows in the UK by comparison to our one in SA, which is a 2 hour flight away from me...I need to win the Lottery...aaah, but I need to be in it...another day then...

I use the floor all the time; just never took a photo there...great angle. LOL. I really like your journal page as well. Circles are my favorite shape...you'll see them on the page on my desk too. Hope you have a good week!

Lunch Lady Jan said...

You do realise that photographing from a prone position makes you a professional now?? lol!! Seriously, it is amazing hor altering the shooting position can make a normal pic seem swizzy!!
The pages remind me of bubbles in the sky :) yay!

Ha ha! I wonder if Julia knows what we go through to bring different angles to our work desks every week. Great view though. I love the colours of your tags in the previous 2 posts especially the secret garden. Thanks for your visit Hugs Mo x

Annie said...

I'm chuckling at the picture you paint of how you managed to get that photo....you will be hanging from the light for us next week :-)

Ann B said...

Tried to post a comment but it threw me out, try again. Love the alternative view of your 'desk' but now I'm down here I can't get up off the floor.
Enjoy Stevenage, wish I could come but a bit too far.

Great page. I love Wendy Vecchi. Have had the honor of meeting her three times. She is a hoot, but hates getting her picture taken.

Neet said...

It would be lovely to see you at the show but it is a bit far for me to travel to. One day ...
Thanks for the peek at your workroom, albeit from an angle I could not get down to. Love the journal page - I still have not gone to the videos and really must as you have been doing some amazing stuff.
Hugs, Neet 11 xx

Nan G said...

That is one busy floor Helen! H&S would have a field day with you!!

scrappystickyinkymess said...

Loving that page spread. I am so enamoured of all things dotty. And DOH! Now I feel like I have to drag out a map and find Stevenage to see how far away it is...although I DID promise DH I would help him clean his office on Saturday, maybe I can bail when he isn't looking....

:)
Have fun!

Belinda said...

Helen,

I love the circles they look like bubbles to me. So pretty. And I like that shade of blue.

You have lots of craft goodies up on that desk. I am always thinking that I should try a new angle when I shoot my desk too.

Have a blessed day!

scrappymo! said...

Your page reminds me of blowin bubbles when i was a kid. Ohhh, the joy of it!
OMG if I got down on the floor to take my picture, I have to pan where to sit so I could get back up!!!
No more plop myself down anywhere as I need to grab a chair or a couch to help myself up. One leg doesn't like to bear weight from that angle...I might get stuck down there till spring!!!teehee With all those supplies though, I would be OK.

House of Bears said...

We love your journal page, we've been spraying blues the last couple of days and have the blue fur to prove it. We hope to go to Stamperama but it depends if they allow bears in,

CraftygasheadZo said...

Your journal is coming along nicely, though lying on the floor to take photos is a bit mad! Ha ha. Footy was good despite loss, we played hard and battled them but it wasn't to be. They are now top 3 so we didn't disgrace ourselves. Am so tired so early night needed despite going back to bed. Ah well. Take care & enjoy this week whatever it brings. Zo xx 59

Elizabeth said...

Wow! Usually all we see is a wee square of floor so get no idea just how much more there is to your crafty stash :)

Look forward to seeing what you bring back from the show on Sunday.

Happy WOYWW. Elizabeth x #58

Di said...

Oh my G*d!!!! Do you have a wire rigged up to get from one side of the room to the other? Brilliant shot - and like others, I'd still by rolling round trying to get back up!

Happy WOYWW, hugs, Di xx

Krisha said...

Your post has me chuckeling out loud. Trying to start a little photo competition are we? LOL Sometimes the floor just has more elbow room and knee room. Between the dog and the DH the floor is a forbidden zone in this room. Dog thinks she can craft and DH doesn't know how to step high enough to clear the creativity.
Very cool journal page start you have.
Thanks for popping by my blog

Helen, I just adore your new art journal pages--can't wait to see it all done! Happy WOYWW! Sandy Leigh #113

Hello Helen,

I love seeing how creative we also get about taking photos of our workspaces! Now, if I got on the floor to take a photo I would still be there today.......

Your journal page is very cool! I've told myself I really need to start journaling or doodling every evening - so far it hasn't happened yet......

Thanks for visiting and leaving a lovely comment.

Happy WOYWW
Hugs, Kay #2

The lengths we go to at WOYWW to get a good photo of our stash! Love it and am quite jealous at all that goodness.
The page is fabulous.
Happy WOYWW!

isisimaginings.com said...

Like the look of that journal page. And I sill can't my head around the fact that you craft on the floor.... :)

pearshapedcrafting said...

Great view! Don't think it would work for me - I'd spend the whole time wondering how i was going to get up again - If I venture under my desk I need to hold on to my chair to get me up again!! Love that technique, saw the same u-tube clip I suspect! Have a great time at Stevenage, Chris141

Darnell J Knauss said...

That's quite a wonderful minefield of crafting goodies there, Helen! I even see the "Reserved for Helen" sign peeking out back there. Fun journal page, too!!

Thanks for leaving some love at the Playhouse! Happy WOYWWing!! Darnell #48

Monica said...

Great journal page.
Love the angled shot! Couldn't do it myself - I'd never get back up!

I laughed like a drain at BJ's comment!!! But I don't think you'd ever make it across there in a hurry if you ever had to!! Yeah, I think I got a good bloke, he's worth hanging on too!

sandee said...

I hope you run into someone wearing a WOYWW badge, wouldn't that be just too cool! I hurt all over thinking of you working on the floor! lol Thanks so much for visiting my blog today, waving hi from the hills of North Carolina ♥

fairy thoughts said...

Is that a desk I see before me.... that is one crafty floor space .... there have been a few new angles this week... good to see we are keeping the interest up some desks(inc mine) can get a bit samey.
have a great week

If you are at work when did you do all these posts!! Love your bubble page as well. Unfortunately won't be at Stevenage, but will try and do a tag this week - have been very bad at challenges this last fortnight!!Thanks for stopping by, Cindy #68

VonnyK said...

You sure have a lot of goodies there. I love the spotty journal page.
Hope you get to meet some fellow

Meihsia Liu said...

Wow..Helen, you got lots of fun stuff on your work desk to play. Love your wonderful art journal page. Thank you for sharing... :)

MaggieC said...

I could not work on the floor, partly because if I got down on the floor, I would never have got up again, but also there is no room down there. Hope you have a great time at the show. xx Maggie #42

RosC said...

Ha, I love the shot from the floor. The shelves tower upwards most impressively with the wide angle from down low. Had a chuckle. Love the journal page which reminds me of a Di Reaveley (spelling??) stencil in a way. Terrfic colours.

Thanks for visiting and noticing the mannikin. Some one suggested he was a bit naked but that's okay. :-)

Cheers,
Ros. #36
